Kazbah and Some Zumbo Treats

On Saturday morning I was up by 6am and out the door by 6:30am. I picked up my cousin Queenie and drove to Balmain. Queenie wanted to go to Adriano Zumbo to get some Macarons and a few other treats to try. Since Trissa lived in the area, I asked her to meet us for breakfast. She suggested Kazbah. Kazbah on Darling specialises in Middle Eastern and North African cuisine.




After a quick stop at Adriano Zumbo we walked to Kazbah. The breakfast tagine immediately caught my eye. I decided to order the Lamb Breakfast Tagine which had lamb mince, sucuk, spinach, roast capsicum, roast tomato, caramelised onion, feta and eggs. This comes with Turkish toast and Lebanese bread $18.00.



The tagine was hearty and spicy. The eggs were perfectly cooked and the middle eastern flavours were strong. Although this is a Tagine for one, you can certainly feed two people with the amount of food that comes out.


Queenie ordered the French Toast with Bacon and Glazed Baby Figs $16.50. The French toast was a thick slice of Brioche, it was extremely sweet but the salty bacon cut through the sweetness.


Trissa ordered the Scrambled Eggs with Turkish bread and the Breakfast Shish Kebab $16.50. The shish kebab came out with 3 different kinds of sausage and a piece of pork belly.

On top of what we ordered, we also got some haloumi. Haloumi is in my top 5 of cheeses. Salty, squeaky goodness.


Kazbah is located in 379 Darling Street Balmain. Breakfast is served from 9am to 3pm on Saturdays and Sundays. I would suggest making a booking to secure a table.

No post is complete without a bit of Food Porn. Queenie bought a few little treats from Zumbo. She got a Chocolate Torte and a selection of Macarons.


If you are ever in Balmain make sure to drop by Adriano Zumbo. The Patisserie is located in 296 Darling Street Balmain.

I was looking at the breakfast dishes thinking how interesting and tasty they looked, but none made my tummy smile quite like the plate of simple grilled haloumi. Salty, squeeky goodness sums it up perfectly.
